  1. As a dedicated Alien fan I've enjoyed your blog. I notice you've been silent for a while though, so hopefully there will be more postings soon...

    Best wishes,

  2. Yes, I'm doing what I can to assemble information that connects properly in an intriguing way. I want to somehow assemble a book on this whole thing so my brain is burning over time trying to understand what the structure of the book could be.

    I do post at the AlienExperience.com/forum and AVPGalaxy.net when there is a thread I can play with

  4. Thankyou. The way the information seems to be unfolding these days is almost like being a detective and an archeologist. I'm also finding it also important to show how I discovered each piece of information and made the connection.

  8. Hello, my name is Laurence F. Knapp. I’m the editor of Ridley Scott: Interviews, published by the University Press of Mississippi in 2005. I’m currently at work on the second edition (the first edition ended with Matchstick Men). I noticed that you referenced the Films Illustrated 9 Nov (1979) interview "Duelling with Death: The Alien World of Ridley Scott" on your blog page Alien Explorations. Do you have a copy of that interview by any chance? Also, do you have a list of Ridley Scott Alien interviews from the late 70s? I'm planning on dropping the James Delson interview "Alien from the Inside Out" that I included in the first edition of Ridley Scott: Interviews.

    Any assistance you could give would be appreciated,
    Dr. Laurence F. Knapp

    1. Yes, I have a photocopy of the interview, I can scan it for you shortly. I'm not sure about a list, I used to have the printouts of interviews in the BFI collection. but I ought to make a list of all the interviews that I do have and publish them here, it might even help me and I will do that soon

  9. Thanks! This is EXACTLY what I'm looking for—an original long-lost interview that offers shrewd insight into his work. Bravo! Do you have any idea who conducted this interview? Also, do you have a copy of the Carducci Cinefantastique interview "Making Alien"?

    I'm also looking for an insightful Prometheus interview if you've run into anything off the beaten path. Again, I'm looking for intelligent, insightful interviews that allow Ridley Scott to shine.

    As of now you are THE Alien resource.

  10. I don't think the name of the writer for the Duelling Death interview was given unfortunately. I'll need to think about the best Ridley interview for Prometheus because I don't really think they were all that successful, a lot of them went in blurred directions perhaps because of the blurry nature of the film.
